Pinterest Inspiration with Glue Arts: A Glowing Halloween

Hello friends.  Julia, our Design Team Coordinator from Glue Arts gave us a fun challenge this week.  We found a picture on Pinterest that inspired us and then made our projects.  The wooden hinged box came from Hobby Lobby and I got it on sale for $3.50.  I decided to buy two and am glad I did because I  really like them!  Check out the Glue Arts Blog for some fun projects and inspiration.

Perma Tac, Glue Gun and Melt Sticks (Glue Arts), Paper, diecuts, stickers (Authentique), Chipboard (Heidi Swapp), Metal tag (Tim Holtz), ribbon, spider and ghosts (making memories), Orchid and Black paint (Plaid), Copper Embossing powder (Ranger), Clear Stamps (Crafty Secrets), wooden box with a hinged door (Hobby Lobby) Tiger Lily Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels)
